Clash of Clans: TH11 Upgrade Order (Updated)

TH11 Upgrade Order

Town Hall 11 is an exciting Town Hall level that unlocks access to Grand Warden, the electrifying Electro Dragon, and the icy Ice Golem. If you reached TH11, this means you remained steadfast and now you are one step closer to fully maxing out your base.

Additionally, TH11 gives you access to a mighty new defense, The Eagle Artillery. Eagle Artillery would change the way you attack as now you would want to plan your attacks according to the placement of Eagle Artillery in the enemy’s base.

New Buildings and Grand Warden

Let’s start with getting the Grand Warden. The first thing you should do as a TH11 is to get the new hero. Grand Warden is a mighty wizard that can do wonders in battle. He can make your troops invincible for a few seconds with his Eternal Tome Ability. Luckily, upgrading your Town Hall gives you a boost on your heroes. You will have a level 6 Grand Warden for the next 5 days.

You also get one Cannon, one Archer Tower, one Wizard Tower, 25 walls, one X-Bow, Eagle Artillery, and a few traps. You should keep at least two builders busy on these new buildings and take them to the same level as the older buildings.


Attacking other Town Hall 11s is no piece of cake without well-upgraded troops and the Laboratory makes sure your troops are better and strong. The Laboratory is always at the top of our upgrade priority list. You are going to need more robust troops to take on the fellow TH11s. 

Laboratory to level 9 upgrade cost: 2,100,000 Elixirs

Laboratory to level 9 upgrade time: 2 days, 18 hours

Elixir Storages

You are going to need a lot of elixirs to upgrade Grand Warden and troops. You should upgrade your Elixir Storages so you can store more elixir. You should use only one builder to upgrade all of your Elixir Storages. 

Elixir Storage to level 12 upgrade cost: 1,000,000 Gold

Elixir Storage to level 12 upgrade time: 2 days

Gold Storages

Gold Storage upgrade is another important thing to do as a new TH11. You should finish upgrading all of your storages as early as possible so we don’t have to worry about storage problems when we start upgrading our defenses. 

Gold Storage to level 12 upgrade cost: 1,000,000 Elixirs

Gold Storage to level 12 upgrade time: 2 days

Army Camps

You can increase your total troop housing space to 260 at TH11 by upgrading all of your Army Camps. It is recommended to use all of the free builders on your Army Camps if you are done with the upgrades mentioned above. You can’t perform well in wars without upgrading your Army Camps so this is a high-priority upgrade.

Army Camp to level 9 upgrade cost: 4,200,000 Elixirs

Army Camp to level 9 upgrade time: 6 days, 6 hours

Clan Castle

Clan Castle gets an upgrade to level 7 at Town Hall 11. A level 7 Clan Castle gives you access to an extra spell slot. This might not look like a lot but an extra spell can make a difference. You can now bring spells that take 2 housing spaces, i.e Rage Spell.

Clan Castle to level 7 upgrade cost: 5,500,000 Elixirs

Clan Castle to level 7 upgrade time: 6 days, 6 hours

Spell Factory

The sixth level of the Spell Factory unlocks the Invisibility Spell. The Invisibility Spell is an incredibly helpful spell that could prove effective in clan war battles. You will have a lot more possibilities for your attack plans with the new Invisibility Spell; which makes it a high-priority upgrade.

Spell Factory to level 6 upgrade cost: 3,500,000 Elixirs

Spell Factory to level 6 upgrade time: 5 days


You can upgrade your Barracks to level 13 at TH11 unlocking the electrifying Electro Dragon. Electro Dragon is a powerful air unit with a nice balance of hitpoints and damage per second. This upgrade has a high priority because Electro Dragon strategies are frequently used for TH11 attacks.

Barracks to level 13 upgrade cost: 6,500,000 Elixirs

Barracks to level 13 upgrade time: 7 days, 12 hours

Dark Barracks

As a Town Hall 11, you can upgrade your Dark Barracks to level 8 unlocking the new dark troop called the Ice Golem. Ice Golems are widely used in Clan Wars from Town Hall 11 and higher. Ice Golem makes the regular golem obsolete.

The Ice Golem is commonly utilized to kill enemy heroes and castle troops. On their death, an Ice Golem can freeze everything in their range for a few seconds. 

Dark Barracks to level 13 upgrade cost: 7,500,000 Elixirs

Dark Barracks to level 13 upgrade time: 8 days

Grand Warden

It’s time to work on our mighty new hero. Grand Warden is the second strongest hero on ClashDaddy’s tier list because of his Life Aura and Eternal Tome ability. Grand Warden makes nearby troops invincible for a few seconds when you pop his ability.

I advise using a builder to constantly upgrade your Grand Warden to reach level 20 as quickly as possible. Your Grand Warden will become an absolute monster at level 20 enhancing his hitpoints, damage per second, and Eternal Tome ability.

186,600,0006 days, 6 hours
197,100,0006 days, 6 hours
207,900,0006 days, 6 hours

Archer Queen

Archer Queen is the most powerful hero of all (personal opinion). Archer Queen can be leveled up to 50 at TH11. A level 50 Archer Queen has a good amount of hitpoints and deals a significant amount of damage per second. In various attack strategies, Archer Queen is an essential element, and Queen Walk is obviously impossible without her.

Let one of your builders upgrade your Archer Queen so you can get better in wars. For both of your heroes, you will require a lot of Dark Elixir, so do an attack whenever you can.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Dark Elixirs)Upgrade Time
4189,0005 days, 12 hours
4293,0005 days, 12 hours
4397,0005 days, 12 hours

48122,0005 days, 18 hours
49127,0005 days, 18 hours
50132,0005 days, 18 hours

Barbarian King

Similar to Archer Queen, Barbarian King gets 10 more levels at TH12 and can now be upgraded to level 50. Barbarian King soaks up a significant amount of damage and his hits deal a lot of damage.

Barbarian King’s ability makes him rage and spawns a lot of Barbarians to help him take down whatever he wants. I would recommend keeping a builder busy on Barbarian King so you can max him out faster.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Dark Elixirs)Upgrade Time
4180,0005 days, 12 hours
4285,0005 days, 12 hours

49119,0005 days, 18 hours
50125,0005 days, 18 hours

Eagle Artillery

Eagle Artillery is a defense building that unlocks at TH11. Eagle Artillery has the biggest attack range in the game but it activates when 200 housing spaces of troops are deployed. You would have built Eagle Artillery already by now and it’s time to upgrade it to level 2 as mentioned in the section about the new buildings at the start of the article. 

Eagle Artillery to level 2 upgrade cost: 8,000,000 Gold

Eagle Artillery to level 2 upgrade time: 8 days, 12 hours

Inferno Towers

Inferno Tower is the defense with the highest damage when set to single-target mode. You must keep Inferno Tower on top of your defense upgrade priorities because it deals a lot of damage and helps in defending against Electro Dragon attacks that are pretty common at TH11.

You can upgrade Inferno Towers twice at TH11 which makes them a nightmare for attackers.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Gold)Upgrade Time
44,200,0005 days
55,200,0006 days, 6 hours


The X-Bow is your main factor in defending against Siege Machine attacks. X-Bows have a long range and can inflict a lot of damage. X-Bows can be set to both air and ground mode making them a good core defense building. Town Hall 11 adds a new level to X-Bow.

X-Bow to level 5 upgrade cost: 4,900,000 Gold

X-Bow to level 5 upgrade time: 6 days, 6 hours

Air Defenses

Air Defenses are an aerial attacker’s worst nightmare. Electro Dragon attacks are fairly common at TH11, and you won’t stand a chance against them unless you upgrade your Air Defenses.

Air Defense to level 9 upgrade cost: 4,200,000 Gold

Air Defense to level 9 upgrade time: 6 days, 6 hours

Air Sweeper

The Air Sweeper is a defense building that targets air units with air blows. It does no damage, but it is incredibly helpful in defending against air troops. Air Sweepers can cause enemy Electro Dragons and other air troops to fly in the wrong direction, rendering all of their planning useless. 

Air Sweeper to level 7 upgrade cost: 4,200,000 Gold

Air Sweeper to level 7 upgrade time: 3 days, 12 hours

Archer Towers

Archer Towers get two new levels at TH11 and because of their ability to target both air and ground units, Archer Towers have high priority than a few other defense buildings. Upgrade your Archer Towers to dominate both air and ground units.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Gold)Upgrade Time
142,500,0003 days, 12 hours
153,500,0005 days

Hidden Teslas

Hidden Teslas are the strongest trap in Clash of Clans. Hidden Teslas deal a lot of damage to both air and ground targets and they have a quick fire rate which helps them wipe out low hitpoint troops in seconds.

Hidden Tesla to level 9 upgrade cost: 3,100,000 Gold

Hidden Tesla to level 9 upgrade time: 5 days, 12 hours

Wizard Towers

Wizard Towers deal a lot of splash damage to both air and ground units, enabling them to wipe out a significant number of low HP troops. Wizard Towers are also the key to defending against Hog and Miner attacks so put some effort into your Wizard Towers.

Wizard Tower to level 10 upgrade cost: 5,200,000 Gold

Wizard Tower to level 10 upgrade time: 6 days, 12 hours

Bomb Towers

Bomb Tower’s ability to deal plenty of splash and death damage gives them a higher spot on our priority list than Cannons and Mortars. Bomb Towers can help you defend against Hogs, Miners, and other troops that are deployed in swarms.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Gold)Upgrade Time
53,500,0004 days, 6 hours
65,000,0006 days, 6 hours


Cannons have high damage per second and a good fire rate. Cannons play their role in defending against ground attacks, especially against Wall Breakers and Golems.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Gold)Upgrade Time
142,100,0003  days
153,200,0004 days, 6 hours


Mortars are always at the bottom of our priority lists because of their low damage but this doesn’t make them useless. Mortars are a very good tool for defending against Witches if you position them well.

LevelUpgrade Cost (Gold)Upgrade Time
93,500,0004 days, 6 hours
104,800,0005 days, 12 hours

Gold Mines, Elixir Collectors, and Dark Elixir Drills

All of these resource-mining buildings should be upgraded at the end because they don’t provide a good amount of resources for a player to rely on them.

Walls and Traps

You should always be upgrading traps and walls at the end. Walls can help slow down the enemy and well-placed traps also play a good part in defending your village.

Wall to level 12 upgrade cost: 1,000,000 Gold or Elixirs

Wall to level 12 upgrade time: None
